In the face of injustice, people band together to work for change, and through their influence, what was once unthinkable becomes common. This title traces the history of the civil rights movement in the United States, including the key players, watershed moments, and legislative battles that have driven social change. Iconic images and informative sidebars accompany compelling text that follows the movement from the Reconstruction era through the movement’s great successes in the 1960s and up to the challenges that still face the country today. Features include a glossary, selected bibliography, Web sites, source notes, and an index, plus a timeline and essential facts. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Essential Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
